rr summed it up well, and I am just elaborating. We were Hesston and Case dealers. And sold many PT10s and 7s painted Case colors or Hesston colors. There were some issues with the pully/ecentric drive, and bellcrank(wobble as you call it) All the bolts in the bellcrank were 2" long, 1/2" taperhead wheel studs, which threaded into the cutter bar head, counter weight, and pitman head ball. Then a taperhead wheel nut was tightened on the other side of the bellcrank assy. to tighten down that side. I often saw farmer repairs with common bolts and nuts and the tapered holes in the bellcrank were ruined. I have also seen the situation where the crank pully came loose on the tapered stub of the conditioner roll and ruined both. Another issue that was far more prevelent was the roll clearance stops. one roll moved up and down as crop volume changed. over time the clearance stop pads would wear allowing the rolls to contact each other, with spring pressure from the movable conditioner roll tensioner. Since the rolls had spiral welded flutes on them, excessive contact would cause the fluts to crack and break off the rolls. It was a simple adjustment to do, but farmers rarely took time to check, until it was to late.
At $300 you shouldn't get hurt though.fro salvage and scrap.
